August 5, 2003
Correct spelling for release is Psychick TV.

Two tracks unfortunately tracked together into one track.
From the cross section of Psychick TV related material I've come across this is one of my favourites from them alongside the original TOPY themes from the Force the Hand of Chance album.
Genesis takes on the tape loop as compisition tool and comes up with a beautiful 45 or so minute journey into the life of Kondole the whale; who we discover is the protector of fire and is selfish with it and gets a spear thrown at him by his fellows. The resultant of this action was the creation of animals.
To this day I have not heard Dead Cat due to the fact that it's unfortunately cobbled on the back side of Kondole I always fall asleep or stop listening before it arrives, or am startled by it and shut it off.
Beautiful sleeping music.
As heard in the Orb, as sampled from the infamous Roger Payne "Songs of the Humpback Whale" recordings.
